2nd Biennial NY6 Spectrum Conference for LGBTQIA Students, Faculty, and Staff

February 27-28, 2016

Welcome to the second NY6 Spectrum Conference for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Queer/Questioning, Trans*, Intersex and Ally students! The name “Spectrum” has been intentionally chosen to include all identities. The purpose of the conference is to help students make connections with peers on other campuses, talk about what it’s like to be LGBTQIA student, faculty or staff member at a NY6 school, and discuss how to foster positive change on our campuses.

Keynote Speaker: Alicia Garza

We are pleased to announce that Alicia Garza, activist, writer, and co-creator of #BlackLivesMatter, will be the keynote speaker for the Spectrum Conference.
